You won’t hear the news media telling it like it is. But the Washington Times did. Obama’s budget is an utter failure, not one house member voted for it. Not even a single Democrat.
Critics will spin it, if pressed. They will say something like “the Democrats knew Republicans would vote against it so they just voted no”. Yes but there is a reason for that. They know Obama’s budget is full of more debt busting policies that they don’t want to go out on a limb and be associated with.
Even the Bowles-Simpson plan failed to pass the House. They are the bipartisan deficit reduction committee Obama created to avoid a debt default last August. It was shot down 382-38.
So Obama’s solution to the debt limit debate was to create this deficit reduction committee. And their proposal could only muster 38 votes in the House. LOL.
